GIMP Photo Editing + Graphic Design Tutorials

In 2011, we created Davies Media Design on YouTube to provide a free way for beginner graphic designers, photographers and business owners to learn GIMP, the free image manipulation software. Today, the channel is a huge success (thanks to you guys!) with 9 million views from all over the world and 95,000+ subscribers.

In our tutorials, you’ll learn how to edit and manipulate photos without needing to purchase Photoshop, how to make professional flyers and greeting cards for your business or personal projects, and how to design graphics for web and print projects. We also teach you how to use the tools found in GIMP, as well as other important and useful features. Watch one of our acclaimed tutorials below!
